Agreed. We usually have catfish or trout and grits.

speaking of southern/soul food, anybody been to Sylvia's Kitchen in Harlem?

How's that? Deserving of the accolades?

I like it but you would probaly find better food strolling around Harlem.

No matter how much you prefer dark meat, cannibalism is still illegal.

hmmm...quite the phrase. depending on where you are in the city. there's a great "soul food" place on 1st & 10th, Birdies. great food at great prices. Sylvia's and Amy Ruth's are both quite good, but a bit pricey for what you're getting. I'd probably go Amy Ruth's over Sylvia's.

there's some pretty good "southern" food in NY. You've got vaguely Carolina style bbq at Brother Jimmie's. Better Carolina and other style bbq at Virgil's. A pretty good approximation of TX style at Hill Country. Some good creole stuff at Back Forty.

You've got more "soul" stuff in the east village at Birdies, Mama's, and a couple other places. Then you've got a ton of options in Harlem & Brooklyn, so yes, there's southern/soul food in NYC.

Fortunately this Southerner grew up in New Orleans ... a Southern city that actually has good food.

My wife and her family...wow..... the food is so Southern. I didn't really get a full grasp of it until after we were married. All the women are just incredible cooks - and my mother-in-law is one of six children. And she's got cousins with farms, beehives, ranches, fishing boats, etc.... so the big meals - Thanksgiving and Christmas - would do Trimalchio proud. Field peas, collards, mustards, fresh grouper, apalachicola oysters, quail (not a fan), prime rib, fried chicken, mac and cheese with bacon, three kinds of cobbler, something called buttermilk pie, pimento cheese, it's amazing.

I felt bad taking her to my parents' Thanksgiving dinner. It was awful by comparison.

I don't get pimento cheese. I can't help but think "this is why you're fat" whenever I see it served.

I enjoyed this. I'm not sure if it's southern though. It's an album showing how to make Buried baked beans.

Not really a Southern specific complaint but since this is the food thread I am in. When will people finally accept that tilapia is disgusting? So that store store will stop selling it.
